Mediterranean Modernism : Intercultural Exchange and Aesthetic Development, Hardback Book

Mediterranean Modernism : Intercultural Exchange and Aesthetic Development Hardback

Edited by Adam J. Goldwyn, Renee M. Silverman

Part of the Mediterranean Perspectives series


This book explores how Modernist movements all across the Mediterranean basin differed from those of other regions.

The chapters show how the political and economic turmoil of a period marked by world war, revolution, decolonization, nationalism, and the rapid advance of new technologies compelled artists, writers, and other intellectuals to create a new hybrid Mediterranean Modernist aesthetic which sought to balance the tensions between local and foreign, tradition and innovation, and colonial and postcolonial.
